Effects on abdominal bristle number were determined for three mutations,scabrous-like, dark hairy margin andscabrous, and for some second chromosome recessive lethal genes prevalent in various irradiated and unirradiated selection lines derived from an outbred population. The relationship between the effect of a lethal gene on a quantitative character and the equilibrium frequency of the lethal in a line selected for that character was examined.
